Private schools chosen by parents
Our focus is on helping children and their families—and what’s best for them. We encourage parents and guardians to choose any accredited K-8 private or parochial school in Connecticut that will accept their student and work with CEO to apply our scholarship dollars to the child’s tuition account each year. Currently, our scholars attend over 40 different schools.
For as little as $55, you can fund a week of school for a student in need. A gift of $2,100 will fund a maximum full-year scholarship.
